NHS trust board to address emergency target dip
BOARD members of the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will meet today to discuss how changes to the way emergency provision in the county is being felt on the frontline of acute care.
The trust dipped below its target of 95 per cent of emergency department patients being seen across both county hospitals within four hours last month. Attendances were the highest on record for July, with four-hour performance hitting 94.65 per cent.
Average length of stay for non-elective admitted patients last month was 6.08 days – just above last year's level of 5.82 days.
Gaps in doctors' rotas in A&E departments remain the biggest challenge to delivering on performance.
